Must do activities in Las Vegas

1. Ride the high roller
High Roller Las Vegas

Lets start with seeing the strip from up high, on a budget! This gigantic ferris wheel is like being on a bigger version of the London eye or Singapore Flyover. The individual pods are HUGE and if you luck out, you might just get one to yourselves like we did. You'll have sweeping 360-degree views of the Las Vegas Valley and The Strip, the wheel takes around 30 minutes to complete one revolution, the city lights are mind-blowing at the top!

We recommend buying your tickets in advance to avoid any queues when you get there.
